Calendar Girls - February

Hello!  Yep, it's time for the February posting for the Calendar Girls on SCS. 

Kelly, is our hostess this month.   She challenged us to use fabric and no image on our card this month.  You may use a sentiment, but the fabric must be the focal point of the card.

Well, anyone who knows me, understands that sewing stuff is not my gig.  I admire those who can create with it, but remember I am the girl that had the potholder project in high school and the teacher asked what it was when I turned it in.  'Nuff said!  LOL  

As you can imagine my house is barren of bolts of fabric!  Short of cutting up a shirt, I had to go to the craft store.   Holy night!  What a bunch of choices.  I had to simply get out of the fabric section - it was too much and I did not want to spend a bunch on something I would only use a bit of.  It reminded me of when I chose fabric for window treatments....endless!  So, I made my way to the crafting section.  I totally scored!  I found little bits of fabric on clearance, three for $.10.   Done!  

The shape was already created, I added an eyelet and ran a Copic over the edges to color.  I did have recently received {wink} fabric ribbon, so I used some of that.  Then I had some paper that I just loved but was not sure how I would use it.   I dug it out for this card.  I think I might have even received the paper from Kelly...how funny would that be?!

So, here is your song....turn it up!  It is one of my favorite Crue songs.  Of course you have to play it on every road trip - and everyone must sing it aloud - it's a classic! Oh okay, you can sing it aloud right now too, you know you want to!

Be sure and see the other Calendar Girl creations. Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Have a great day!

Aw, Tami - this is SEW sweet! And a great idea to get a little dabble of fabric and make it your own (sewing was not required on this challenge, lol) I like how you bedazzled the ends of the fabric to create a border!

So glad you're a Calendar Girl!

Oh Tami, I laughed out loud at your post. (still giggling here). For a fabric challenged pot holder gal you sure did well with this card. I think you under estimate your crafting abilities...:) You did a great job!!!

U're very creative Tami! Love how you turned a piece of simple fabric into a lil work of art combining it w/ stapled ribbon and matching color edges! The centered sentiment takes it all the way home! well doneeeee♥
